So after I put in one of my favorite scenes in movieland ~ Mame’s rendition of We Need a Little Christmas Now, into yesterday’s post, I began thinking about that special movie ~ all the amazing quotes from it that I loved. Now the one I gave you, was the 1973 version with Lucille Ball and Bea Arthur which is a classic unto itself. However, my favorite rendition is the original movie called Auntie Mame with Rosalind Russell from 1958.
So I got my computer, put it on the kitchen table, started some broth in a pot on the stove and checked out my trusty Amazon account (thinking of ShareChair http://sharechair.wordpress.com/in the back of my head…what would she do to find a free version of a the movie) and began! What I found was a FREE VERSION with my Prime account…and I could watch it from my computer, while I made comfort food for my family and myself.
So as I chopped veggies and chicken and whipped up homemade chicken soup complete with a dash of love and then scooped Nestle Toll House chocolate chip ready made dough from a container and ‘baked’ chocolate chip cookies, I watched my movie in the kitchen by myself…fresh balsam candle twinkling and making the house smell like love and Christmas…and with food ready for our bellies, filled with love and comfort.
In the midst of all of my kitchen antics, my doorbell rang ~ my neighbor brought me a huge homemade wreath ~ made with the branches from our street which had fallen and are being picked up by the town this week…TAngel and her husband had painstakingly picked up branches of magnolia trees, spruce and pine and she had woven the most beautiful wreath I have ever seen, complete with colorful Christmas ball ornaments to brighten my day. I was in awe of her talent, let alone the fact that she had made it for me. I feel so grateful and so blessed. To be given such amazing holiday spirit by a kind friend! (See pic above ~ I just took a pic of it, added a border and voila! It’s the front of her thank you card from me! If you’re new, check out my website ~ http://www.rememberchristmas.com/deanery
And when I was all done with my movie, chicken soup ready for the family dinner and homemade (ahem) cookies for dessert, I got online to see if I had any emails waiting…and there you all were…our beautiful blogging community…
Thank you my friends. Your outpouring of loving comments made me cry…
and I want you to know how blessed I feel…thank you.
I BELIEVE ~ Shine On!
